Odds and Ends Stock Paste
What do you do with your vegetable scraps? Did you know that you can use them to create a vegetable stock? We found that when it came time to make more vegetable stock we were going out to buy ingredients that we didn’t have on hand. By storing the scraps you can save time and money. If you have a big weekend of cooking planned, just store your scraps and make up a batch of Odds and Ends Stock Paste at the end of the weekend. If you take longer to accumulate scraps you can keep a container in your freezer. Consider using a container roughly the same volume as your mixer bowl so that you will know how much you need. For this stock paste shown we used some of the vegetable scraps from creating recipes in The Budget Issue and some vegetables at the end of their life.
